In Iraq today, small arms and rocket-propelled grenades struck a convoy carrying America-s top commander, General John Abizaid. The convoy entered a military compound and nobody was injured. The incident followed two bombings that killed more than 100 Iraqis, including police and potential recruits for a new army. Yesterday, Secretary of State Colin Powell told a Congressional committee that Iraqi sovereignty may be delayed beyond the mid-summer deadline set by President Bush. We talk about security in Iraq, international diplomacy and the implications for this year-s presidential campaign with a journalist in Iraq, and former staffer in the Defense and State Departments and the National Security Council.
Comcast's Bid for Disney

We hear more about Comcast's bid, what it will mean for entertainment -- and Eisner -- from a former Disney board member, an expert on telecommunications policy and a media and entertainment analyst.
